Dial code red in an emergency

The Red Cross in Singapore and more than 12,000 professionally trained people who can give first aid now use the iPhone app “Rapid Rescue”. In case of an emergency, users can activate the app and an alarm is sent to first aid givers within a range of 2km. Directions on a map are also provided.
